Tell us about your R/C boats?:I now have 2 Faiwinds, # 72 "Evolution" (picture on the registry) and have just finished # 721 "Blue J"

Both were stock boats that I stripped and converted, the first, Evolution, was my son's, and he lost interest in it so I renovated it, a document on my renovation effort is on this website under "files" (fairwind.doc), the second I bought on ebay and was a bit of a wreck but was given the same treatment as the first. Both boats have interchangeable rigs which can be affected in less than a minute. I haven't figured out which is quickest.

Both are now, I believe, very competitve, they beat Victorias regularly in most conditions and hold their own, and sometimes beat, the local 36/600s in a good breeze when the 36's get overpowered and are difficult to control.

Unfortunately there are very few Fairwinds in the Phoenix area so I am now building a 36/600 so I can compete with the other locals on a level playing field.

Tell us about your R/C boats?:I currently own a Fairwind that I purchased about 15 years ago. She was sailed regularly. I eventually purchased an RC Catamaran kit and built it. It became my main boat and the Fairwind eventually became a garage queen. I recently sold the Cat and now have a renewed interest in the Fairwind. I just completely stripped her and repainted her to mimic a production cruising sloop.

Tell us about your R/C boats?:Cedar Lake Yacht Club is located on Big Cedar Lake in West Bend, Wisconsin. We are a sailing and social club on a 932 acre inland lake in the southeast part of the state about 30 minutes from Milwaukee.

We have five fleets of scows (X, M, MC, C and Optimist) for which we are sanctioned by the Inland Lake Yachting Association (ILYA). Each fleet has scheduled races all season long.

We also have a fleet of about 25-30 Fairwinds boats, which we call "F boats". We race every Sunday and Thursday evening from Memorial Day to Labor Day and have done so for about the past 9 years. A typical evening of racing allows 6-10 races depending upon wind, etc.

Most of our Fairwinds skippers are also scow sailors or retired scow sailors. As you can imagine, the races get very competitive as racing sailors tend to be aggressive and intense during competition. We also have a judging schedule where skippers take turns setting up the race courses, calling the races and judging the events. Sailors are expected to follow true ILYA rules and regulations. Infractions thereof are penalized with restarts, 180's and 360's.

We also have a slate of volunteer scorekeepers that track each sailors race positions, completions and results. At the end of the year, we have a trophy dinner/party where we celebrate the season's winners.

It is a little rougher than expected and has seen a lot of salt water. A little TLC and some new paint will put it back in shape. Does anyone know of a web site where I might find a copy (.pdf file)of the owners mannual or assembly instructions?

Tell us about your R/C boats?:have 2 fairwinds, one i bought 6 yrs ago now, i broke the keel off it but kept it around for 3 yrs before a friend an i remade it with a new keel. we made it so we could either run with 5 lbs or an 10lbs for high winds...its remove able found the heavy one is not as fast as if it was a stock one. but it works, hav put it out when most are running for the car to go home.
the other one was bought off the e-bay......it came mashed/broken...an the other guy would not take it back..the keel an the part of the hull, an the mast were about the only things that came in good shape...took the from the deck main hatch back - cut it all away an refilled the deck area up with wood an glue- the boat will float again soon. plan on giving it away to a new friend, i met an showed how to sail.......it should make a good fun starter boat for some one.
i have had many long hours of fun with my boats of witch are many now, been in r/c going on 10 yrs now. am building a 5 footer right now too. there a good past time that lasts for hours of enjoyment.......

Tell us about your R/C boats?:Have old Fairwind. What is Kyosho 500? Wanted to buy used Fairwind 900 and EC-12.
Dealer said Kyosho doesn't sell the Fairwind anymore, or at least not thru dealers.What now? I have 2 grandkids who sail with me and I want to have 3 boats so we ALL can sail together. Don't understand how this site works. Just stumbled upon it. I'm AMYA member #1747.
Years ago I had two EC-12s but sold them. (bad move)Now I want at least one more again.
Thanks, Dave. My fairwind is AMYA 21.

Tell us about your R/C boats?:"Little Bit II" is a restored Fairwind that was originally built in 1991. When I purchased it, the hull was yellowed and cracked with the transome really to fall off. After a few weeks of glassing, filling, sanding, and repainting, she has a new lease on life and sails great.
Web page comments::Great to be here and see all the other boats of this type. Thios site really gave me a lot of ideas, helped in the decision of purchasing, and the restoring of my boat.

Tell us about your R/C boats?:I have a Aquacraft Paradise for about a month. Adding a jib topping lift and adjusting the solid boom-vang for mainsail twist really helped to balance the boat for strong winds. The Futaba set-up comes with the boat. It works well.

I plan to buy a Fairwind for next year racing season. The 9" draft and keel shape appeals to me for our shallow ponds with weeds. Our local shop has the boat for $169. I haven't found it for a lower price anywhere.

How did you find this web page?: "Tradewinds" search
Tell us about your R/C boats?:I have three, 1982 vintage, "Tradewinds" boats with home-made "no tangle" r/c (no direct servo) sail winches.
One of them cracked through transversally, allong a symmetrical arc(7in or 18cmm long) exactly behind the reinforcement of the keel rear bolt. The crack occured when the bow inpacted upon an immovable object at medium speed(~60cm/sec, or 2km/h). No wonder, considering the huge inertia of the heavy keel.
The hull is made of injection molted high density styrofoam. I am at a loss as to how to glue the crack watertight, especially in the fringes of the crack, where epoxy cannot be applied. Are there any waterproof adhesives that whould seep into the crack and seal it without "melting the styrofoam?

She had been watch some guys in Sterling Hgts sailing and thought it would be a fun thing. She talked to some of the guys and they led her to either the Victoria or the Fairwind. She opted for the Fairwind. I'm in the process of searching out the info through AMYA, tossing e-mails back and forth with Will, and constructing the boat.

Thought a RC Yacht would go well.

Used to fly RC Gliders and have done some full size sailing and also interested in boat building. Have a Joel White Nutshell Pram Dinghy sitting in my shed that I built.

Looked around for a good entry level RC Yacht and came across the Fairwind 900. Really looks a great boat.

I have it on order, just awaiting it's arrival.

One concern, I live in Melbourne, Australia and there doesn't appear to be many other Fairwinds about downunder.
Anyone in the Melbourne area that has a Fairwind please drop me a email.

My boat will be called 'Madam Gull' and hopefully sail no: 607. Will build her largely to plan but will incorporate some of the design tips gleaned from this website.

Cheers,

The fact that my pond at home will catch a bulbed keel like an anchor is also another reason. Will be purchasing my Fairwind in two days. I have already shopped for the proper trimming parts from some help from this site. I will look forward to registering the sails as soon as it is built. What is the average depth of the keel on the Fairwind? The name of the boat still to be purchased will be "Whiskey Bay". Thanks for this amazing site. I like 505, I can't put it on backwards:)

I finished construction on it a few weeks ago, and have had in the water once, and planning to go out again this afternoon. I really like the boat, except for the blue jib that came with that model. Though I will race some, my main enjoyment is the scale realism, and I have plans to work a small inboard engine with collapsible prop into it, along with running lights, and possibly a crew (with a dog on the bow). I am also a very big fan of JRR Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" books, and have named my fairwind "Sul Melethril", which in the Elvish language means, "wind lover".

Tell us about your R/C boats?:First I built a Dumas Huson 26'' three years ago. But it did not make me very enthusiastic about it. Until I bought a second hand Fairwind II in which I did a lot of rebuilding, repainting and made her a real beauty. I gave her the name Calypso and have a lot of fun by the Saronic golf, Aegean sea in Greece where I live. I plan to have an IOM class sailboat very soon but I haven't decide yet which one. "Image" from Sails Etc and "Southern Cross 3" from Brad Gibson are in my sort list. Have any ideas?

Tell us about your R/C boats?:I just have a Fairwind 900 (my second kit). My first one suffered a severe crack in the hull during a move across state. I've had my second one for a couple of years now. It's painted in a Stars & Stripes theme and is named the United States. I also built one for my brother for his 40th birthday. It is painted a base of bright banana yellow. At the keel it starts with a metallic red and fogs into the yellow as it flows up the hull (it is quite striking on the water). As far as I know, it is unnamed. When we sail at the beach that my brother lives by, we always draw a crowd.
Web page comments::The tips are very informative. I'll have to try some of them out to coax a little more speed out of the boat.

Tell us about your R/C boats?:My first r/c sail boat was, and still in use,is a CR610 Americas Cup racer bought for me as a present by my son Stuart two years ago. I named the ship "Grumble-weed" (which was the nickname given to him when he was born by the hospital nurses!) I enjoyed sailing it many times on lakes at Maidstone in Kent as well as Penzance in Cornwall UK.
Having enjoyed this type of sailing so much and wanting to get a larger craft that would cope with slightly stronger sailing conditions Stuart has now bought me a Fairwind 900 which I am about to commence building.
However I have heard that there are some variants as regards the recommended ballast weight. 2kg is recommended in the instructions although I have heard alsdo that 2.5 kg would be better ---- ANY SUGGESTIONS OR ADVICE VERY WELCOME BEFORE I COMMITT MYSELF ??

Tell us about your R/C boats?:I got the fairwind 900 on 11/3/10 . i am just getting into radio controlled sailing. I am very active in real sailing with small boats like blue-jays and lazers. I figered I would have a great time sailing the Fairwind and I can practice for real sailing just by saling a rc sailboat. I also belive that making the Fairwind 900 with my dad would be a great way to spend father-son time together.
My brother bought a rc sailboat and i hope to race him i live in Northport, NY and I am interested racing. please right to me in what clubs or organisations that hold races near me thanks.

At or running pond there was a man who was sailing a sailboat, first time for me to actually see one sail, thought they were neat.......

Came across a FAIRWIND at a garage sale, used twice, wife told owner ".......no more toys......". So I bought it cheap. Will trick it out a bit using your tips....on this website. And sail it next year. There is a local club that races sailboats. Not sure what clasees they run.

Tell us about your R/C boats?:Well I too had a 900 until she sailed off into the lake and ultimately over the horizon never to be seen again. That was 4 years ago.The lake was Biwako the place otsu city ,Japan.The Fairwind is a beautiful looking yacht and looks and sails so well. The reason I lost her, was I think, Low Rx battery power ! BE CAREFUL I used to sail for an hour or more at a time and forgot the health of the batteries/nicads. This is a real issue as you will become totally engrossed in just watching the Yacht cut through the water up and down from all angles. DON'T ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN TO YOU. Watch those Batteries.
I am going to be buying another 900 in the very near future, can't believe I have waited almost 4 years.
Other boats I have are a Kyosho Jetstream with an OS 32 for drive. This boat is a lot of fun especially on a day with a bit of a swell and some small waves it love to get airborne and has flipped a couple of time, Everything is well watertight inside so there's no drama, just dry it off and off she goes again searching for the next wave to launch off.
Happy sailing.

Tell us about your R/C boats?:I will purchase my Fairwind 900 in 3 days time, so I cannot give you any register details yet. I live in a smallish city called Bloemfontein in SA, which has an excellent "loch", surrounded by a waterfront complex. The loch has a connecting "island" in the middle with access to water all round it. There is very little sport activity happening on the water, with the occassional jet ski races perhaps twice a year and the odd paddle boat rental place. The weather is perfect all year round for sailing.I haven't sailed yet and know very little about sailing. I have a 5 year old boy, whom I'm sure would like to sail and learn the ropes with his dad. I'm a little apprehensive at this time as I don't know what is expected of me as a rookie captain on a maiden cruise. So, any beginner tips will be appreciated. I have collected and flown a number of kites in all forms in the past 4 years as well as doing the buggy thing with quad kites. I have learnt a little about tacking, which I'm sure is an important sailing pre-
requisite. I'm also excited as a little boy getting his first radio controlled car!!! I will report back once I've had the boat on the water.
Web page comments::I needed some closure on the prospect of sailing and your site has made up my mind for me....I will collect my Fairwind 900, complete with radio on September 7, 2001. Thanks for a great site.

Tell us about your R/C boats?:I've had a fairwind "Flying Dog" for about 6 years now, used to race with about 12 to 18 other fairwinds every Sunday but sadly the club fizzled. Im dying to start it up again. I've taken my boat with me everywhere, vacation on lakes in Maine, on big boat trips etc. , even sailed cold buds out to passing canoers which they GLADLY excepted. Last winter I dropped a chunk of wood on her and damn near split her in half.
Through much epoxy, lots of sanding, a new rudder assembly and fairing out the hull, Ive made it back to reinstalling the servos and repainting. I hope to have her back in the water in a few weeks.
I have a mini race course in my pool I set up with fishing bobbers that makes due til the weekends in the big pond. Ive had hours and hours of fun and looking forward to many more.

Blast that's heavily modified (water cooling, bearing
motor, and so on), an MRP Fountain superboat (41" long
electric), a Traxxas Nitro Vee, a Kyosho Ocean 500 sailboat
(cute little boat, really), and a Fairwind 900 that's
somewhat customized. The Fairwind is the pride of my
fleet, with a hand-laid marine-grade birch plywood deck,
the metal rigging kit (which contains a brass ships' wheel,
aluminum capstans, and brass turnbuckles), a two-tone blue
and white paint job, and a lot of time and toil to make it
as close to right as I can. I've had the Fairwind for
nearly 6 years, and spent nearly 18 months in on-and-off
time working on it. I am rather pleased with the results,
but now need to take the time to get to know how well it
sails. I've only had it on the water twice, mostly because
I'd rather lose a smaller, less expensive boat if something
should go wrong. I'll get up the nerve to sail it more,
I'm sure...it's just a matter of when.

Tell us about your R/C boats?:I started with a small Cup Yacht from Aristocraft (though I think it was originally made in Australia back when Dennis Connor was wining)... Tiny, but lovely and fast.



Then I got a Fairwind hull at a scratch n' dent sale for $25. five eyars ago. Nothing but the hull, not even the top hatch. I have a very small hobby budget, so I make do. I re-used the radio from the cup yacht, made a clear plexiglass hatch with the servos, etc, glued under it, you could see everything working, and if there was any water inside, but it didn't look pretty in-close to shore. The masts were carbon fiber arrow shafts, the sails, dacron kite

cloth. I also found what i later discovered was a Victoria hull, in black, very clean, no other hardware. Same deal, including making a lead keel from tire weights in a mold made in plaster from a foam positive. (lost foam process).



I just came upon some spare masts and booms for the stock Fairwind, and am wanting to get it more stock-looking. My biggest need is acopy of the manual as scanned JPEG's or a PDF file, so I can do all the rigging right.... for now, I've been aping the cup yacht's rigging, and it's simple but not very scale looking. My boat, named after the Sinatra song "Summerwind", gets a lot of curious onlookers in the pond at Washington Park, Springfield, Illinois. Every time I go out, a couple wives come over and ask where they can get one for their husbands (this is as big a boat as my wife will let me have;-)). She sails really nice as-is, but I'm thinking about how to rig a 150% genoa on her, just for grins. I am also commodore and chief racing steward of the Washington park Yacht Club, with current membership of ....one... but I got a nice hat, got the scrambled eggsa and everything;-)..........



If anybody can send me a copy of the Fairwind manual, I'd appreciate it: MSU1049321@aol.com JPEG, GIF, BMP, or PDF

the best,(practice makes perfect) I have 2 new kits just
delivered and looked at both hulls a couple of days
ago.Only thing I can say is they really need to retool or
do something with there moulding.The flashing around the
deck and hull just keeps getting thicker with each kit.This
is getting to thick to just trim off with a knife.Early
kits had very little flashing and was real thin.I have
overcome this in the last couple boats using a retract
blade breakoff razor knife,and bending the blade in a U
shape to get rid of the flashing.That works well,but these
2 hulls have flashing over an 8th inch thick.Russell

Tell us about your R/C boats?:I have two kyosho boats, the fairwind 900 and the seawind.
I received them as gifts from my wife. The Fairwind was
built for me by Hobbytown USA in Wilmington, NC. I built
the Seawind over the winter. My goal was to have them both
look like the pictures on the box. I'm a sucker for decals.

I have an electric twin engine power boat, but sailboats
are the most fun. I sail at Lake Waccamaw, NC, which can
get rough, but any Sunday on the end of our pier with A
tall Margarita and a boat in the water is a perfect day.

My goal is to build a Fairwinds with racing look and a
custom paint job.
Web page comments::want to see more pics......

Kyosho Wavemaster, Billings Zwartze Zee, and an outrigger.
I'm in the middle of building a Dumas Barrelback. And I
have a Dumas Thompson Trawler waiting to be started. I just
ordered a Fairwind 900. I wanted to see what it was like to
be powered by the wind. I also have some RC cars and
trucks.

Tell us about your R/C boats?:o, i know that theres a lot of people that mite think a
teenager doesnt know much about sailing, but ive been
sailing for over 12 years, and racing, including the port
huron to mackinac race (any sailor in the great lakes
region knows of it), so i know my sailing. ok, anyway.
one of the biggest issues in sailing is the weight, right?
the lighter it is, the faster it goes. but a light boat
isnt good in heavier winds, so how do you get the best of
both? heres what i did. i made several different
removeable ballasts. im sure im not the first person to do
this, but i havent heard anyone talk about it. i made a
mold of the inside of the keel with plaster of paris, the
made a mold of the mold, thus resulting in a form of the
exact size of my keel. i then made several different
ballast inserts of different sizes. there are light ones
for when there isnt much wind, heavier ones for moderate
wind, and then some good sized ones, for when the wind
really picks up. they provide great ballast for the boat,
and are easy to get out. putting a metal loop in the top
before the ballast is completely hard makes sailing in
different wind conditions a breeze (no pun intended).
well, thats my tip. hope it helps.

Tell us about your R/C boats?:Just finished my first - a Kyosho Fairwind 900. Sailed for
the first time today , quite a handful - need to tune it a
bit I think! Seemed to have trouble standing up , but then
the wind died a bit and I had an hour of almost perfect
sailing.
